Gemeinhardt Alto Flutes at NAMM 2005 Greg Vail with my FAVORITE FLUTE BABE Mary Opperman. Mary is truly amazing and has taught me a lot, going back as far as 25 years now. Muramatsu Flutes at NAMM 2005. I play a wing tip Muramatsu, thick wall Silver with inline G. I played MY FLUTE but still new and it only costs 7530 to replace. Maybe next week? Muramatsu Artists include Detroit Symphony Principal seen here talking with staff.
Mary Opperman is seen here falling in love with a Platinum Clad Thick wall Flute by Muramatsu that costs a mere 14 Grand. Dean Flutes and Alto Flutes are a deal for the money. The Dean Alto Flute was listed at 1999 and had a great low register and sound. Detroit Symphonies Principal is seen here with Mary Lazer Opperman, my friend.
